YouTube Scriptwriter (English)

  • Berlin, Berlin, Germany

Job description

What if you could literally change the face of the earth? One global rewilding mission at a time. That’s what we do at Planet Wild.

Planet Wild is a series A-funded, B-corp-certified, environmental startup from Berlin. But more importantly, it’s a global community that uses the power of digital storytelling to fix our planet - IRL. Think Greenpeace for Generation YouTube.

Every month, we go out on a mission to clean up oceans, replant forests, and bring back endangered species. Funded by a global community of everyday individuals, and executed together with rewilding pioneers around the globe, we are working at the frontlines to help nature bounce back.

What does that look like? In the last year, we went out to bring Europe's largest land animal back from extinction, clean up the ocean floor at 40 meters depth, save dolphins from mass tourism, protect Elephants with the help of bees, repopulate wild lynx in Germany, plant hundreds of food forests, rewild rivers, train guerilla wildfire fighters, and reintroduce Europe's cutest bird back to its former home.

We built Planet Wild so that everyone can see the results of our work with their own eyes – transparent and in monthly video updates. It’s how we stay accountable and reach more people every month. Check out our work on YouTube:
